What is AWANA?
The word Awana stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and is from 2 Timothy 2:15 –
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Awana is a Bible club that emphasizes learning the word of God. Awana is set up in three 30-minute time blocks: Handbook Time, Council Time and Game Time and meets each Wednesday from 6:45PM to 8:00PM begining in early October going through late April. During Handbook Time the clubber will recite the verse(s) they have learned throughout the week to their leader. As sections are passed, emblems and awards are presented to be worn on the clubber’s uniform as a display of their achievements. These incentives reinforce good behavior, encourage future achievement and create enthusiasm for learning.
